Despite dealing with a Kickstarter fundraiser that came down to the wire and a pressing plant issue (wherein one of the machines broke down, and the part required to fix it had to be ordered) that nearly derailed plans to have copies of the record at last month’s reunion shows, Rocket Heart Records made it happen.
That’s right: you can now own Ultimate Fakebook‘s Electric Kissing Parties on glorious 12-inch vinyl. It comes on either black or limited-edition red, and sounds fucking great. I picked up my copy directly from Taylor at Rocket Heart headquarters this past Saturday, and it’s gotten blasted on the stereo quite a bit down here in the basement. It’s mastered nice and full, and the sonic quality is just monster. It took a lot of time and effort to get this done, and it shows.
You should go purchase the LP directly from the Rocket Heart store for $15 (if you want red, you might want to hurry – they’re almost sold out). The more of these that get sold, the closer we are to a vinyl release of This Will Be Laughing Week.
